Back in 2011, the good folks at Rhino Records requested we take a stab at curating their ‘Just Can’t Get Enough: The ’80s’ playlist on Spotify — and now that the label’s launched its own app within Spotify, we’ve been asked to freshen it up occasionally with 25 new tracks representing the classic ’80s alternative era.
This week’s headlines on Slicing Up Eyeballs included posts about The Cure, Depeche Mode, New Order, Morrissey, The Stone Roses, Adam Ant and Bob Mould, plus a new Peter Gabriel contest and the first installment of our Rhino ‘Just Can’t Get Enough — The ’80s’ Spotify playlist.
The Cure today launched a special standalone website dedicated to the upcoming ‘Disintegration: Deluxe Edition’ that features videos, liner notes and photos — plus streaming audio of 20 additional demos and live tracks that won’t be on the 3CD set when it arrives June 8.
